We are very proud of Uppal, Chhopsang, Telau, Samjana, Meena and Manju, who chose to give back by volunteering for social work. They participated in our annual trip to HRDC, the orthopedic hospital, and they did some excellent work with the small children who were confined to their beds.

In addition, they went every day, on time and on schedule, to entertain and teach a group of 40 children who were recently rescued from a very substandard childrens’ home. The girls were compassionate but stern, as these children had never had any type of supervision or attention, so they were a bit wild! There was a positive change in their behavior after our girls started working with them. They did a fantastic job and enjoyed their experience – it was a great lesson for them to learn firsthand that the greatest happiness comes from giving to others.
